Humor time: here's why you (don't) need a selfie stick

Selfies are already yesterday's news, but it seems that there's still a lot of popularity around the so-called selfie sticks. One of the more curious accessories that we recently informed you about is the $79.99 "Belfie" stick - a simple and straightforward tool that allows you to immortalize your well-shaped behinds.

That's exactly what "belfie" stands for, a butt selfie, and the credit for its creation is due to no one else but the famous-for-being-famous Kim Kardashian.

Well, one of our favorite comic artists - Matthew Inman, has come up with a brilliant guide on whether you need a belfie stick in your life. If the name "Matthew Inman" doesn't ring a bell, it's probably because he is more popular as "The Oatmeal".

Check out his humorous creation.

He didn't limit it to Asia. Things can be really popular in Asia and still be popular in other places. xD
